The Students Are Gone, Now it's Time to Celebrate our Staff and Faculty! - Huntsville ISD's All Star Awards

On Friday, June 6th, our district celebrated our annual All Star Awards, where we celebrated our Retirees, our employees' Service and our employees' excellence.  Each year, the district takes this time to honor outstanding accomplishments, and it's always a terrific way to begin summer vacation.

Presenting our 2014 Star Staff Awards! 

Support Person of the Year- Sheila Simmons

Instructional Assistant of the Year - Carol Johnson

New “Rookie” Teacher of the Year - Gianna Diaz

Innovative Teacher of the Year for Elementary - Nina Baker 

Innovative Teacher of the Year for Secondary- Stacy Godby

Teacher of the Year for Elementary- Grace Bass

Teacher of the Year for Secondary- Stacy Godby

It was not only great to see and honor those whose names are listed here, but also have a chance to see and visit with folks from all corners of the District.  We have a diverse group of people all working in different positions to make sure our children stay safe while getting the best education possible.

Because they were busy with their responsibilities during our District awards presentation,
our Transportation Department was celebrated earlier in the week.
Here Dr. Steve Johnson helps honor and celebrate the retirement of Thomas Peltier

Read through the names below of the folks that have served us throughout the years, and scroll down further and take a look at the photos, see some familiar faces and maybe some folks you haven't met yet.
